levees. i kept thinking, the category 5 levees we need are shelter and quality education and health care for everybody and infrastructure and transportation so that people can move on. is there any possibility of taking that and making it a broader conversation, environmental policy or housing policy that makes it easier to manage this? >> i think there is. i agree with neera that people like this post-partisan moment. they are tired of partisan politics and nothing getting done. we need it all. we need education and infrastructure. bloomberg endorsed obama citing global warming as the cause. twice in the last 14 months, new york city has had to evacuate. that has never happened before in the city's history. all these things are in play. this has changed the dynamic. there is a sense we need to move on this. i wish we could have bipartisan agreement on how to move forward. >> it is tough to have bipartisan agreement when republicans keep being climate change designers and anti-science in a variety of ways. >> anti-science, we are still dealing with 46 million people on food stamps. we ar
later about education, higher education is often the first thing on the menu to cut in many states because young people don't vote in as great a number. that needs to be clearer and more boldly stated by the candidates. >> it's an interesting point. if i'm tutoring at the neighborhood school, i get the instant gratification. if i vote for a candidate, the candidate is a messy sort of things. it also feels to me, ben, part of what that distinction is between charity and justice. charity feels good but justice takes a long time. i hate to do the, oh, young people need to cultivate patience thing, but it does feel a little like that sense. >> look at our culture. we have the high speed internet, fast food. meanwhile you have a gridlocked congress where very little, if not anything is getting done. i think this was the least productive congress ever. >> on purpose. >> reconciling those two forces at odds is difficult for those people. >> we'll come right back to you, valerie and felicia. when we come back, young voters out there, if you're listening, president obama really does have a
richard. he writes. i have created a series of educational dvds. i would like to start a business that among other things would sell these educational dvds to schools as part of their lesson plants and to retail outlet's in box sets. how do i determine a value weighs when looking for investors which i would need to produce investors? >> old school. i think the reality is that investors, there is going to be something in between what an entrepreneur thinks that their valuation is and what an investor thinks. a lot of accelerators are saying, for $25,000, we are going to take 10% of your company, regardless if you are selling educational dvds or anything. that's sort of setting what i think is sort of the right level on the floor. >> what about this idea of convertible debt? it sounds like for what he is doing, maybe this is for friends or family or somebody who is interested in the educational world. the idea of don't set the valuation at this first round. say this is debt. when we get our next round and we have more sophisticated investors, with he will convert that into equity. d
are delving into the digital world, be knowledgeable. >> education is key. whether or not you're educating yourself or send a couple of your staff in and whether that be trade shows, digital marketing trade shows or whether that be meet-ups, you have to get involved and you have to rub elbows with the people who know for you to get ahead of the space. >> one big takeaway from the experts, if you are still using some technologies from two years ago, you may be in trouble. >>> we have a power trio of experts on this topic this week. ramon ray is the editor of smallbiztechnology.com. a company that shows small businesses how they can use technology to grow. riva lasonski, the founder and ceo of grow biz media. a company specializing in coverage of small businesses and entrepreneurship. and brian hallagan is the cofounder and ceo of hub spot, a marketing company. i had not seen that cat video before. that is funny. i somehow missed that one. brian, i wanted to start with you to ask you something about seo. seo used to be sort of the holy grail. if you could figure out seo. is it still as impor
are with us. richard writes, i have created a series of educational dvds. i would like to start a business to sell them to schools to use as part of their lesson plans and to retail outlet box sets. how do i determine which i would need to produce additional episodes. dvds was the first thing that caught me there, right? >> that's true. old school. old school. i think the reality is investors are never going to -- there's going to be something in between of what they think the valuation is. accelerators are setting valuations saying we are going to take 10% of your company. regardless of selling educational dvds. it's setting the right level and floor. >> what about the idea of convertible debt? it sounds like it's a friends and family. the idea of don't set the valuation at this first round. say this is debt. when we get the next round and more sophisticated investors, we convert it. do you see that happening? >> i see it happening. sometimes it's in a local community. we have an organization called jump start that supports entrepreneurs. they are deploying their companies on the same met
vote idea. here is a way of spending -- let's get rid of elections and get rid of having educated citizens who are educated every two and four years. wouldn't it be easier if we had no money in politics, no elections, no vote counting. >> wait a second. the point here is actually -- i know -- i'm saying if we are worried about the expensive campaigns, i think running the popular vote election is more expensive. >> we have to do more than reforms as well. it's why the people who are push thg are saying yes, we need money out and people in. we need a full democracy. it's one part of it. i don't think it's sufficient. >> how is making every vote count going to cause more money to be raised? >> hold that thought. you can think about this. you can't think about the way it will impact the policy positions the candidates take. i think that might be interesting. we'll be back with more after this. that can only come from having someone else pay your mortgage for an entire year... this is what you'll experience if you win the quicken loans skip-a-year mortgage sweepstakes. up to five winne
was a big topic, cost of education was a gigantic issue that came up with young people. so, you know, so the question would have been similar. it's not about -- we look at elections and policies through the eyes of young people. so whatever concerns them most and affects their every day life are the questions that they ask. >> one thing i was struck by was, it was about a half hour and a bunch of questions from kids, of military age, not one question about the other kids of military age who are in afghanistan were now in our 11th year of war, not one question about that. >> if we keep going in afghanistan we might get questions from those same kids ten years from now. we're aware of it and aware of the cost, a lot of people who aren't fighting it think of it as something that other people do. >> my favorite thing sway was you speaking to him father to father. >> that was interesting. one of the questions we posed what are you most worried about malia getting a driver's license. >> how old is your daughter? >> my daughter is the same age as his, 14. so i was curious as to what he would sa
government are best partners at fighting poverty, improving education, that kind of stuff. >> governor walker, for you as well, the defining issue that determines the outcome in your state? >> well it's certainly about jobs. in our case it's elections are fundamentally about the future and not about the past. so i think people on the few weeks back on that night in denver and john's state outside of his hometown there when voters got to see that mitt romney had a plan and the president didn't. and now in the last few days, he's trying to gloss that over with a 20-page glossy document. he doesn't have a plan, mitt romney does. in fact just yesterday as i was traveling the state, there were literally farmers out in fields that had almost like a burma shave commercial. they had one sign after another after another that listed out the five points of his plan. people want to know how they're going to get working in janesville or green bay or wausau or milwaukee or superior. they want to know how we're going to get working again. i think it was clear after the debate. we saw record numbers of volun
they've got a chance to get a good education and learn new skills. and, by the way, so did the businesses that hire those people or the companies that those folks start. we believe that when we support research in the medical breakthroughs or new technology, entire new industries will start here and stay here somewhere hire here. we don't believe government should poke its nose into everything we do, but we do believe this country's stronger when there are rules to protect our kids from toxic dumping and mercury pollution. when there are rules to protect consumers and ordinary families from credit card companies engaging in deceptive practices, mortgage lenders that are unscrupulous. we grow faster when our tax code rewards hard work and companies that create jobs here in america. and we believe that quality, affordable health care, and a dignified retirement aren't just achievable goals, they're a measure of our values as a nation. that's what we believe. for eight years, we had a president who shared these beliefs. his name was bill clinton. when he was first elected, he
for a greater federal role in education. he had a real plan there on prescription drugs. they developed a vision. so there was real substance there. mitt romney was far to the right in the primary. gave the conservative base everything they wanted. this is one of the most conservative republican platforms we have seen. he did nothing at the convention to move away from that. he waited until october 3rd to start in a debate to articulate moderate-sounding outcomes. not policy, but outcomes. things that sound pleasing to moderates, but he's not changed his position on anything that i can see. i'm struggling to see a precedent. the idea of you can't trust this guy. you don't want him being president. if it's going to work against a candidate, it would have to work now. >> have you seen that attack work? the idea that this guy is morally flimsy, useless. he will do whatever needs to be said and can't take him at his word. has that ever been stuck on a candidate in a way they can't slough off? >> it can be stuck on a candidate in the sense it raises their personal negative rating. that's far variety

at -- >> you don't have to. you're not here to agree. you're here to elucidate, to educate. >> if you consider that how much money romney has tried to spend in the last couple of weeks trying to move the numbers in ohio and he hasn't. at this point they're trying to buy some cheap tv advertising to buy some time in pennsylvania, that's not going to happen. he may stand there and tell ohio, hey, i need you. it's not going to happen. he's already behind. and if you look at the battleground early vote states, he has to win 54% of the remaining votes in ohio to win the state. so those numbers, if you consider how many of the early vote people have already voted, in colorado, where you cited the ppp poll, he's got to win 55% of the remaining votes in colorado to win. that's where you start to see the wisdom of the obama team strategy, of a strong ground game and focusing on early votes and those sporadic voters and that the map for romney is getting tighter. >> ari, there is that decision is there another route. sometimes the democrats are doing it but here it is for romney. is there a route around
increasingly going the way of the dinosaur. a number of factors contribute. education one of them. training is another. and in terms of our tax structure it needs to be more progressive than it is now, and i think we really need a leader who is going to address those changes and work on rebuilding the very systems that make america america. >> the honeymoon. >> that's something on your mind. >> yeah. it was really great. these wedding things are hard. planning. >> can i see a picture, though. >> yeah. let's see. >> you guys are a great looking couple. >> look at that. that is us from our wedding day. the honeymoon is great. we went to brazil, and we went hang glided and spent a lot of time biking and going on the beach, and we hiked sugarloaf mountain. it was great. and really nice to go away. and i have to be honest, the first two days it rained while we were there, so we were all caught up on down abbey. >> i can't remember the last time i was around the dinner table. last movie i saw was "argo." i love clint eastwood. but i really liked "trouble with the curve." a hell of a movie. great.

't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agenda that says, when we educate a poor child, we'll a. be better off we need a vision that says we don't just look out for yourself. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations. and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election's all. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008, when we talked about change i told you, i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about changing our politics. i ran because the voices of the american people, your voice, had been shut out of our democracy for way too long. by lobbyists and special interests and politicians who believe that compromise is somehow a dirty word. by folks who would say anything to win office and do anything to stay there. the protectors of the status quo are a powerful force in washington. and over the last four years, every time we've tried to make change, they've foug
credit for the economic recovery that's under way as he took credit for the success of the education in massachusetts even though he was only governor for four years. >> clearly the economy is not stagna stagnant. there are a lot of different statistical data that suggests the economy is slowly but steadily recovering, and it's real interesting for mr. romney to sort of suggest he's not going to play social conservative politics when he's been playing social conservative politics all throughout his campaign. all of his sort of commentary about women's issues and reproductive rates. his commentary about race and class and education, all the things he's been talking about in terms of his campaign have been on the socially conservative sizde. it doesn't make sense he wouldn't appoint judges that are socially conservative and engage in politics that are socially conservative and play to the tea party base of the republican party. that doesn't make sense unless he's playing fast and furious with the truth. according to what he's done up to this point, martin, i'm not sure we can trust him
likened homosexuality to alcoholism and alienated this growing population of college educated socially liberal women who are upset with obama on the economy, but because of social issues they move strongly against ken buck. you see a big gender gap that took place in colorado, 56% to 40%. the growing latino population in colorado and the other thing in 2010 in colorado is he imploded and it became tom tancredo, the former republican congressman. he had the latino vote in colorado. what would have been a republican win in the senate race, because of those factors was a narrow michael benefit win. that is the model the obama campaign has been pursuing nationally here. this year you drive up the support among socially liberal women and drive up the latino support. we won a state they should have won in 2010 and win an election they should have won. >> you're the only person having colorado going red? >> i have it failing in colorado but working elsewhere. >> like you colorado and florida were the two toughest calls for me on my map. i muoved colorado in the blue column like the brilliant
education he mentioned and choice and marriage equality and most emphatically, if you look at the fact he believes in science and does not scoff at the idea of climate change and has taken concrete action to combat it, mr. bloomberg said the choice to him is clear. "one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics." this endorsement criticized mitt romney's leadership on the other hand saying, "in the past mr. romney has also taken sensible positions, but he has reversed course on all of them and is even running against the health care model he signed into law in massachusetts." mike bloomberg criticizes mr. romney specifically for flip-flopping and dropping his previous positions on climate change then says, "this issue is too important. we need determined leadership at the national level." in other words, i don't think we're going to get determined leadership from mitt romney. i think he has taken occasionally attractive positions, but leadership, no. speak
reproductive rights and access is not a distraction from real issues. women's health, education aal opportunities, and economic equality are directly related to unfettered safe access to birth control and abortion. in countries where women control their own fertility, they are more educated, less poor, and more likely to be engaged politically. but mitt romney prefer that supreme court kol women's choices. he would like to see rowe v. wade overturned. president obama, on the other hand, has never waivered in his staunch assertion that women can be trusted to make their own decisio decisions. joining me on my panel here is author of "big girls don't cry." first, i want to bring in my very special guest from oakland, california, democratic senator barbara boxer. senator, it is so good for you to join us this evening. thank you. >> i'm delighted. just delighted. >> senator boxer, talk to me a bit about what we saw happen in 2008 on the one hand sort of women showing up in an amazing way as secretary of state clinton has said, putting all of those cracks in the glass ceiling and then ro
, the highly educated call it good government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one believes a woman's right to choose should be protected for future generations. one does not. that difference, given the likelihood of supreme court vacancies, weighs heavily on my decision. one recog
-working, creative, risk-taking, business-starting, education-seeking people. it's who we are. i have, throughout my life, seen some of the great qualities in the human spirit in the american people i've come to know. there's some stories i love to tell that describe something about the american heart. i was a leader in the boy scouts of america some years ago. and i was at a court of honor. a court of honor is where we give out eagle scout awards and other awards. i was at a table in the gymnasium next to the american flag. the person who was speaking at the microphone was the scout master from monument, colorado. and he said their scout troop wanted to have a special flag. they bought an american flag, gold tassels around it. they sent it off to be flown above the capitol. when it came home, they said, i wonder if it can go on the space shuttle. they contacted nasa. nasa agreed. he said, you can't imagine the pride of our boys, you know, watching from their classrooms, seeing the space shuttle "challenger" launch on the tv screen. then they saw it explode on the tv. he said he called nasa a couple

to recover. and the education agenda that i've got is one that even jeb bush has occasionally complimented because we have said, you can't just give more money into a system without reforming it, and there's got to be more accountability. so there are a whole range of issues, i think, where we can actually bring the country together with a nonideological agenda. the question's going to be how do republicans in congress react post-election. because there's going to be a war going on inside that party. it just hasn't broken out.en un to me. >> let's say you win. boehner is still speaker and the house goes either democratic or republican by one, you're still in the same situation the next four years, so what's going to make the difference? we talked to you about this one on one before. what makes the difference? what is there for americans to believe that democrats and republicans can work together? >> i truly believe that if we can get the deficit and debt issues solved, which i believe we can get done, you know, in the lame duck or in the immediate aftermath of the lame duck, then that clea
on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare, voucher. catastrophic cuts to education, millionaires who get one of the largest tax cuts ever, while middle-class families pay more. that's what mitt romney wants to bring more. remember that when you go here -- >> i'm barack obama and i approved this message. >> no more ads and no more debates. it's up to you. on the republican side, here's the closing argument being made by mitt romney in the crucial swing state of ohio -- who will do more for the auto industry, not barack obama. fact checkers confirm hills attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee aiko can and gm. he sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >>> i'm mitt romney and i approved this message. >> mitt romney did actually say he'd let detroit go bankrupt and he opposed the bailout and said if we did it it you could kiss the automotive industry good-bye and that didn't really work out. when they endorsed him, they said in spite of him scr
with president obama and his administration when it comes to issues of climate and immigration and education. i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on. >> the former secretary of state ruffled some republican feathers. the romney campaign deployed former governor john sununu to respond. that's when things got ugly. >> when you take a look at colin paul, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement mace basted on issues or whether he has a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> did you catch the first line from sununu? here it is. >> when you take a look at colin powell -- >> he said, when you take a look at colin powell. as if it's obvious why powell would endorse a black president because he's a black guy too, right? this is outrageous. this morning a radio host had an interview with the president and asked the president if he was offended by sununu's remarks. >> any suggestion that
